    Question Your Abe cruise budget

    I understand there are quite a few people here who barely miss any of the Abe cruises (however you manage that time-wise).

    What is your average $$$ budget (everything included, the cruise itself, excursions etc.) for such a cruise? I guess it varies quite a bit, based on a number of factors, but a rough ballpark figure from some of you would probably give me a good idea about what to shoot for.

    This helps me, ! Now after I dared to look- it feels more real.

    Joan, the trick is to become "real" about our dreams. Theyīr DONE. And the more you are interested about, curious about, "real" about, the better! You donīt need to figure out "how"- just "what". Even if we have NO idea "how", yet, we need to tell the story about "why" and "how great it feels"!

    Thatīs molding the clay. Thatīs what we came for to practice, and to master: We wanted to express ourselves as powerful creators! Molding the clay is sweetzone. Is the journey. Donīt use the fact that youīr not done yet, with this piece of clay-art as a club to hit you over the head!
    ( Iīm telling this actually more myself than to you, but it still is true )

    Rick, thank you so much, thatīs a great start, so helpful, and a lot more detailed than I would have even hoped for! I was thinking more along the lines of "I was at the XXX cruise and spent roughly XXX$".

    You can of course also pm me about this - I appreciate all the feedback I can get on this!
